Call to Action for Imprisoned, Mistreated Kazakh Pastor

American ally, the so-called moderate Muslim nation of Kazakhstan is mistreating an imprisoned pastor.

Sixty-seven-year-old Bakhytzhan Kashkumbayev was arrested last May for a second time, and imprisoned in an unknown location.

His crime? Effectively leading Muslims to Christ.

Jeff King, of Washington-based International Christian Concern, says Pastor Kashkumbayev is in ill health and has experienced possible torture during his imprisonment. He's calling on Christians worldwide to pray and to contact the Kazakh Embassy in Washington to demand that Pastor Kashkumbayev be freed.

He also wants Americans to contact their congressmen and ask that they urge the Kazakhstan government to release Pastor B.

Watch my interview with Jeff King to find out more about this persecuted pastor:

Here's contact info for the Kazakhstan Embassy in Washington, D.C.:

California senators are inept. They will not help or listen. All we get are form letters saying that they can't do anything. It is better to pray and let God get him out. Fire them all in DC and lets get people who will do something instead of fight amongst themselves. The they want a pay raise. Cut their salaries until they do some real work instead of arguing.
